The City has announced that the Celebration of Lights event will take place on Friday night, Dec. 2 and will feature dance and musical performances, food trucks, floats, Santa Claus and fireworks.

This year, the various festivities will center around Dongan Square Park from 6 to 9 p.m.  A “Renewable Holiday Village” will be created highlighting recyclables and renewables in a festive mood of community celebration. In addition, several businesses and organizations will have other activities taking place that day. And the Mural Square holiday tree also will be lit earlier in the day. 

“We are looking forward to this community celebration and are grateful to our partners who are helping the city bring this to fruition,” said City of Poughkeepsie Mayor Rob Rolison

The mayor thanked the city’s Art Commission and the Bardavon for co-sponsoring and to Artistic Director Andres San Milan for helping to organize the event.

Other sponsors include, Mahoney's Irish Pub & Steakhouse, Milanese Italian Restaurant, The Derby Poughkeepsie, Erin O'Neill's Pub & Grill, Geodis, Rhinebeck Bank, EFCO Products, Inc. and CR Properties Group LLC.

As part of the village setting, San Millan has created four giant float replicas that will appear in Dongan Square Park -- Vassar Brothers Institute, the Steamboat Mary Powell, the 1911 Pelton mansion and the Ruby Bridges Locomotive.  Anyone interested in creating and participating in the event can contact San Millan at  845-216- 8330

  The event will culminate with fireworks, sponsored by the Poughkeepsie River District Business Association, beginning at 8:20 p.m.
